Some Sad News

I had every intention of writing today to inform everyone about how the Speed Dating Extravaganza that a few of us girls attended last night went.

It's funny how quickly things can change.

I woke up this morning (early thank goodness) to find the thing most precious to me lying nearly paralyzed on the floor. It turn out that my adorable Oreo, at some point in the night, suffered from what the Vet thinks was a cardiac embolism that sent a clot somewhere, which then caused paralysis in the lower half of her body... or something along those lines. Truth be told, I was half listening, and my ears only perked up when I heard the prognosis, which isn't good.

If she responds to treatment within the next 12 hours, she may live. If she does not, she will have to be put down. That's assuming of course, that that is the only issue. It's about a 50-50 chance he says.

Sorry to be a downer. I was really looking forward to today's posting and generously spelling out the Do's and Dont's of the silliness of Speed Dating... such as, don't go with 3 other friends when there are only 3 decent guys because it is inevitable that you will all have the same "yes" list and then it could just get awkward... or don't sit right after someone who works at the same place as you... or do make sure that you get an extra beer before the thing starts... or that 5 minutes can seem like an eternity or a blink of an eye...Things of that nature.

It's funny how quickly things can change.

Poor Oreo. Good thoughts sent north in hopes of kitty beating the odds.

Thanks Gals,

Just had a call from the vet... she isn't worse, but she isn't really better either. I'll have more news in the morning. Please let it be good, please let it be good...

oh honey, I am soo soo sorry. I would die myself if any of my cats were in Oreo's condition. I am so so sorry, I can't even express how badly I feel for you right now.

I'll be thinking of you and your kitty all day- sending good vibes.
